It was getting to be nail biting time, but eventually the Buffalo Bills traded up to the 16th pick to grab Tremaine Edmunds off the board.

We’ll see how it all works out. Buffalo has a long relationship with Virginia Tech players. Currently, Logan Thomas is still on the roster (though for how long is anyone’s guess) and recently traded away Tyrod Taylor to the Browns.
In the 2017 season, Edmunds finished sixth in the ACC with 108 total tackles and added 5.5 sacks.
Edmunds brings all of those skills that the analysts are jawing about. He has speed, range, strength, football smarts, good hands, the ability to cover the run, the pass, rush the passer...whatever you need, Edmunds can do it.
We’ll see Tremaine in 2018 on the field in NFL games, I do not doubt it for a minute.
